All materiel pertaining to the course will reside on the web at: www.pa.msu.edu/courses/current/phy101. Efforts have been made to use extensive links to web resources including books on reserve at the PA Library.
There will be no exams in the course. Student performance will be evaluated on the basis of an essay (1300 1500 words, typed) addressing one of the following topics:
Each report must introduce and discuss the importance of at least one physics equation. Prior to starting work on an essay it is important that students clear the topic with the instructor who will try to insure that there is no duplication. Students will make 15 minute presentations of their topics to the class at a series of "student workshops" that will be held during the weeks before Thanksgiving.
